History of NeighborWorks Week

NeighborWorks Week was conceived in 1984 as a way to draw attention to the often-unacknowledged work of what was then a network of 182 local NeighborWorks organizations working in 360 neighborhoods.

As the network has grown to its current level of 235 community development organizations working in more than 4,400 neighborhoods, so too has NeighborWorks Week.

Now, nearly the entire NeighborWorks network embraces the week as a way to demonstrate its solid work in local communities and the cumulative effect of this work on a national level.

About the NeighborWorks Network
